Hostelworld says

Milhouse Hipo is centrally located just off Avenida 9 de Julio, just near the Casa Rosada. This lively party hostel offers spacious and airy rooms and staff who 'make it super easy to meet people, organise tours and pretty much take care of all your needs and wants'. They have daily excursions, tours, activities and parties as well as tickets to local shows and sporting events. We like that the rooms are built around a charming central courtyard.

Property Description

Overview

A stay at Milhouse Hostel Hipo is guaranteed to get you into the fun spirit of buzzing Buenos Aires! You'll be staying in an atmospheric 19th-century colonial-style building with a funky layout and balconies looking over our pretty courtyard. Chill out here with your mates, then head up to our lively bar to take your pick from our list of popular cocktails and dance till dawn – tango, anyone? Our rooftop terrace is the place we all gather ahead of a big night out with a barbecue, or for one of our legendary parties. It's the perfect spot for getting to know your fellow travellers.

Location

We're right in the centre of town, just off the busy Avenida 9 de Julio which has loads of bars and places to eat. The easiest way to reach us from Ministro Pistarini International Airport is to take a taxi – it's a 40-minute drive. Arriving into Retiro Bus Station? Jump on the 70, 100A/B/C bus for 18 minutes to Metrobus Estación Perón and we're 6 minutes around the corner. From the hostel, you can walk to the 70m-tall Obelisk, the Cathedral Metropolitana or the Museo del Bicentenario.

Rooms and Dorms

Our dorms are a great way to make new travelling buddies. They have lockers for backpacks and many have air con and en-suites – there's a female-only dorm, too. You can opt for a private room for a bit more space, a bathroom of your own and free towels.

Extras and activities

Join our super-friendly staff on trips around the city on foot or by bike, and let us introduce you to Argentinian life – with edge-of-your-seat football matches or the hottest tickets to the city's most exclusive nightclubs. For a spot of downtime, play pool in the games room or crash in front of the big screen in our TV and DVD lounge. There's also free Wi-Fi, a handy elevator and a luggage room.

    Amazing hostel, probably the best I’ve ever stayed in. Party hostel so great for meeting people as a solo traveller, but the rooms are far enough from the bar that the noise isn’t a problem. Regular activities during the day and with a different party each night. Parties are combined with the sister hostel a short walk away so usually a good crowd. I’d recommend Hipo over avenue. Great staff with a special shout out to Mica for helping organise tours for me at the last minute

    Fun party hostel. Lots of other travelers looking to have a great time with good atmosphere to support it. I found the staff friendly and accommodating. Gave lots of tips. Buenos Aires is very walkable / bikeable so the location is fine. Easy walk to tons of restaurants in San Telmo and public transit can get you to Recoleta, Palermo, or La Boca cheap and easy. Cleaning staff comes often enough to keep things running. Bathroom could use shower mat, however.

    It’s a good place to stay if you’re looking to have stuff to do at night. Always is some kind of party downstairs and usually they have clubs planned to go out to if you want. They got us into one of the better clubs on NYE which was awesome. During the day it’s pretty chill, optional add ons to see stuff around BA. They do a pretty good job of giving you ideas of what to do and helping you plan it if you don’t have plans. The facilities are average but normal for a hostel

    Had a great stay here. Location is nice, so many cool things to check out nearby. Staff are insanely helpful and will make sure everything runs smoothly for you. Atmosphere is great during the day, but party nights can be a bit of a hit and miss. Nightclub transfer is normally organized though, so either way, you'll be covered. Bathrooms are plentiful and kept clean. Only thing I'd change is to keep the rooftop area open until later, it's just such a good space and a 10pm close is too early.

    Overly big. Making profit has taken over having a good hostel. Drinks are a lot more expensive than in the street. Forced fun rather than natural fun. I think this place used to be really good but has taken a nose dive. All the staff and volunteers are nice there.

    This place is awful if you are a solo traveller, un sociable and hard to make friends, people weren’t friendly and also got painful bed bug bites from staying here for a few days. Would not recommend!!

Milhouse Hostel Hipo says

I think our most unique feature is the combination of our funky and modern decoration with our French colonial-style house with an atrium in the centre. It's great for socialising. In fact, we have parties three or four times a week and we pride ourselves on combining a fun atmosphere with great clean facilities.
We're located right in the heart of the city centre, surrounded by subway stations, museums, nightclubs and bars and near the Obelisco. Personally I recommend checking out Caminito Street in the La Boca neighbourhood.
For fun our guests check out our parties, live music shows, the Milhouse Olympics, walking tours, football games, concerts and nightclubs. Most of our guests are backpackers aged between 20 and 35, looking for parties and organised entertainment. Melina, Owner
